BlackBerry's ripe for the picking as Apple falls far from the tree 

Once-proud smartphone giant BlackBerry has put itself up for sale. How did it come to this? Gareth Beavis knows: "If you don't move with the times, you'll be overtaken and consumed by technological vultures."

All is not great for Apple, either, with the board reportedly jittery about slow innovation. Kate Solomon agrees that "Jobs is a tough act to follow," but says Tim Cook should ignore calls to do something fast.

Something else that's taken a bit of time is Windows 8.1, but it's nearly done now and you'll be able to get it in October. Microsoft hopes it'll boost interest in Windows 8 systems, and so do we: the OS hasn't been the stimulus the PC industry hoped for, and news stories about Windows RT increasingly sound like broadcasts from the deck of the Titanic.

Speaking of travel… This week Elon Musk announced his Hyperloop, which may be the future of travel, a billionaire's folly or a really effective way of turning humans into pink mist.

The Google Nexus 7 is a remarkably solid device all round: the specs and screen are both good, it's got a premium build quality and a very low price tag. If you're on a budget this is the tablet to buy and, even if you're not, it's well worth considering.

The HTC Desire C is better than the handsets it's come in to replace, with intuitive interface, attractive design and competitive price tag. This is a serious contender for the low end of the market.
